Design

1.has stereo speakers
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.has a detachable cable
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.sweat resistance
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
5.can be folded
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.travel bag is included
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

20Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

26500Hz

27000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

105dB/mW

102dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.impedance

64 Ohms

32 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.

Power

1.has a rechargeable battery
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
Brainwavz HM5
Phiaton BT 390
